I feel sorry for Gene Wilder…where is it written that some of his best roles (Willy Wonka, Young Frankenstein) get refilmed or made into Broadway musicals (that don’t include him? It’s not like the guy is dead!). At least he’s spared the horror that goes beyond mere childish banter, into the realm of cloyingly cute. Hmm, make that “Kloyingly Kute.” Erk.
And since I had an extra Willy Wonka photo to doodle around with:
Heck, Johnny Depp can handle the keen kidz…he’s worked with John Waters, Terry Gilliam and Marlon Brando, and lived to tell about it!
